Media Tasting at Santouka Cuppage
Hailing from Hokkaido, Santouka is one of the more popular ramen joint in Singapore. In celebration of its 11th anniversary and 8th anniversary at The Central and at Cuppage Terrace respectively, it is rolling out new dishes, $1.10 matcha latte and a lucky draw chance to reward diners.
Spice lovers might be slightly disappointed with the low heat of Santouka’s Spicy Shio Ramen. Fret not, you can always add in chilli oil for an extra spicy kick. The pork broth was thick, creamy and so satisfying. Topped with two generous slab of pork slices, the ramen is bound to keep one full and warm.
Spicy Shio Ramen at S$16.50.
If you are keen on trying something different, the cold Kaisen Hiyashi Mazesoba is perfect to combat Singapore’s heat. Presented with bright beautiful colours, the default noodles came in a huge portion and includes fresh sashimi slices (salmon & notate), cherry tomatoes, prawns, broccoli and ikura. Served chilled in a shoyu sesame sauce, the richness of the noodles can get too overwhelming and it is best to be shared between friends.
Pro Tip: Do add some chilli oil as it helps cut the richness of the sauce.
Additionally, you can choose 1 Meat Topping (Char-Siu, Roast Beef or Unagi), and 2 Vegetable Toppings (Bamboo Shoot, Coriander, Kikurage, Mixed Vegetable, Mah-rah Negi, Broccoli & Cheese). For the meat topping, we like the Char-Siu and Roast Beef and thought that the Unagi can be improved.

The Strawberry Parfait was a sweet ending to the meal with fresh strawberries, vanilla ice-cream, strawberry sauce and crunchy cornflakes. However, we thought the flavours was rather flat and hope that they could be more generous with the fresh strawberries.
Parfait Strawberry at S$13.50.
